Great low cost Jasmine Tea, my favorite thing is this makes a great iced tea, very refreshing and good on a hot day

For the cost and quality, I would say pass on some of the more expensive brands, this tea gives you the quality without the high cost, you can save your money for another tea. Well worth it. You can find it in many Asian grocery stores, Super H Mart in Dallas (Carrolton) is my place of choice.

I haveto agree with the other reviews, it is a cheaper tea, but it has a good flavor. One of my favorite to make iced, I use, .5 oz (by weight) and 46 oz (by volume) hot water steep for about 5-6 minutes, dump some ice in it to cool and water it down a bit to taste, play with the brew times if you like, I personally like a strong green tea. It’s inexpensive enough to make daily. It also is a great everyday hot tea.

The citric tartness of Yuzu Rind, complement the drink, it’s not a tea for those who don’t like tart teas, but its a good tea if you are wanting an inbetween from an herbal fruity tea and a pure green tea.

this is a great blend, I really liked how the Darjeeling pairs with mint. Its quite a bit better than many other mint teas.

Kukicha is a great tasting tea that uses the parts of the tea that are sometimes considered “leftovers” the stems and twigs, but the flavor of this tea is really good, I love the sweetness of this tea blended with the flavors you would expect from a higher quality green tea.

This has such a dark liquor and well rounded flavor that I only brew it for about a minute at a time, its very good for multiple steeps, and it doesn’t have the mushrooms or musty flavor that can come along with lower quality Pu-erh.

Ok so I haven’t tasted it yet, really it’s just to pretty to break up and put in a cup, I have it on display in my office, it makes for a really cool conversation starter. People look at that and say “that’s really tea?” yep, it’s fun to have around. I plan to buy another and drink it soon, I will review that when I do.
